Meet Heather Ehrcke! This is the final Intern of the Week victor for Term 1, and I can't think of a better person to be in the spotlight. Heather stepped into this program with the absolute best attitude, and quickly became everyone's friend. We are truly lucky to have her in our intern family. She is as fierce as she is kind, and her love for DCH is contagious. The world needs more Heather Ehrckes!
